QT – Psalm 124

Vs. 8, “Our help is in the name of the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.”  This is a another Psalm declaring the praises of God.  Despite the opposition of others (vs. 2), despite the anger others have against us (vs. 3) despite the storms of this life (vs. 4), despite the attacks from the enemy (vs. 6-8)….The psalmist (King David), still turns to the Lord!

Regarding application…God is on Our Side.  Vs. 1, “If the LORD had not been on our side—let Israel say.”  Thankfully for us…God is on our side!  I remember when we used to have gym classes when I was in elementary school.  Most of the time…the P.E. teacher was so lazy he would just throw us a ball and have captains choose teams.  I remember when I would have certain people on my team, how happy I would be because I knew my team was going to win!  A long time ago, I was doing a ropes program with my students on a retreat and Nari Kim was just a little 7th grader.  We randomly drew names out of a hat to pair the smaller students with the older students/leaders.  Nari was so happy she had me as her partner :)  It felt good and I’m sure when we feel happy that God is on our side, He is smiling in Heaven!
